Been meaning to try out Sabayon but have been a little put off by the large footprint the live DVD's will give me. With the core-cd are you in fact getting a short-cut to a gentoo-like system where it can be completely recompiled and versionless? Assuming the user would not use the binary packages and just portage are there any concerns? Can you just upgrade to a new version once one is avialable? I looked through the wiki and there seems to be a lot of warnings about mixing binary and source, but the appeal of Sabayon would be a shortcut to a source based distro. Sorry in advance if any of these questions have already been answered.
